As a founding school for the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program, WASHINGTON ACADEMY OF MUSIC brings conservatory quality music education to the community music school level. We provide a well-rounded music education for the novice beginner, the weekend hobbyist, the serious amateur, or the college/conservatory bound student who has professional aspirations.
Here's why we are widely considered as the first choice for music lessons in Kitsap County!
1. Structured music programs and curriculum
Our music programs are designed to help students become versatile and literate musicians through highly innovative and well designed curriculums.
2. A proven track record of excellence since 2003
Our students have been awarded top honors in state music competitions as well as the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program Assessments.
3. Some of the area's best music teachers
Our instructors have graduated from music programs in schools such as North Texas State University, The University of Texas, Concordia University, Pacific Lutheran University, The Armed Forces School of Music and Western Washington University. Combine this with working professional experience in performance, composing, music production and recording and you have instructors who can not only teach the art of making music; they can also pass on real music industry experience.
4. A wide range of lesson times available:
Monday through Thursday - 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Friday - 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM
5. Our focus is on teaching music; not selling you merchandise
Simply stated: Our focus and drive is to teach music. Where we do offer instruments, supplies or accessories we do so for the benefit and convenience of our students and always with regard for what's best for the student.
6. Comfortable waiting area
We have a comfortable waiting area with free Wi-Fi, magazines, coffee and bottled water service. Each studio has a large observation window so that parents can watch their child's lesson or, if they prefer, they can sit in on their child's lesson anytime.
7. Regular Performance opportunities, video/audio recordings and lots of photos
Our students have many opportunities to develop their performance abilities. They can take a Performance Class, perform in WAM sponsored Music Development Program graduation recitals or at one of our "Pop Night" gigs at a local venue, or they can make a video or audio recording during a lesson. Videos, audio recordings and photos are posted on our "WAMPAGE" on Facebook.
8. We are conveniently located in the retail and business hub of Kitsap County
Our central location in Silverdale near the Kitsap Mall is convenient to all areas of Silverdale, Bremerton, Port Orchard and Poulsbo.
9. Month to month lessons
Our school does not require semester minimums or yearly membership fees. After an initial two month minimum every student here is on a month to month basis.
10. Locally owned. Family operated and oriented!
The owners, the Cox family, have lived in Kitsap County since 1993, buying a home and moving to Silverdale when guitarist Rick Cox was first transferred to Navy Band Northwest. We are blessed to live in such a beautiful place and happy to be an integral part of this great community. Join us at WAM and we'll do our best to make your time at WASHINGTON ACADEMY OF MUSIC the best part of your week!!!!
